(Update 1/14/2012: Yeah, it’s full. By the end of this coming week I will have shot all 100 ants. I’ll post a full recap soon.)
Maybe… but probably not.
I use a spreadsheet to keep track of all the models in the Ant Farm project; not only the ones I have already shot but also the ones that are scheduled and the people who have expressed interest but haven’t yet booked a date. I just noticed that all together, these now add up to an even 100 people, which is the capacity of the project.
So that means it’s full, right? Not necessarily.
Right now there are about 20 people who are in the category of having expressed interest but haven’t yet booked a date to do the photo. History tells me that not all of these people will end up in the project; schedules can be tough to coordinate, especially this time of the year. In all likelihood I will still be able to take some new people.
What I’m doing for now is putting any new people on a wait list. In the meantime I’m going to contact all the unscheduled people and ask them to try to set up a date with me by the end of the year (that is, by 12/31 tell me when you can do the photo, not necessarily do the photo by 12/31). After the first of the year, I’ll know how many spots I have open and I can start working my way through the wait list.
So, if you have previously told me you want to do a photo, please be in touch soon to set something up.
If you are new to all this, drop me a line and I’ll put you on the wait list.
